Yamaha, Federal Premium, Bushnell and the Dallas Safari Club Help Fund 25 Restoration for Recreation Projects Across the U.S.
Salt Lake City, Utah — October 8, 2015 — Tread Lightly!, the leading national nonprofit promoting responsible outdoor recreation, announced a major new initiative funding 25 Restoration for Recreation projects last night during a 25th anniversary celebration in Washington, D.C. Tread Lightly! board members, staff, partners and friends gathered for the special event in the beautiful Gold Room in the Rayburn Office Building on Capitol Hill.
Congressman Rob Bishop, Chairman of the U.S. House of Representative's Committee on Natural Resources, delivered a keynote presentation during the event.
“In order to keep the balance between a healthy environment and exceptional opportunities to experience it, education and stewardship are key,” Congressman Bishop said. “Tread Lightly! has been perfecting unique methods of engaging visitors in education and stewardship for 25 years.”
Bureau of Land Management Director Neil Kornze also joined the 25th anniversary ceremony.
“Each year, BLM-administered lands and waters receive about 61 million recreation visits,” said Director Kornze. “Tread Lightly!’s work to promote outdoor ethics, education, and stewardship helps to keep these visitors safe while keeping public lands healthy and productive. Congratulations to the organization for reaching the quarter-century mark and for its great work,” he added.
Tread Lightly! began as a public awareness program by the U.S. Forest Service in the mid-1980s to address a national need for promoting responsible recreation through ethics education and stewardship initiatives. This became — and is still today — Tread Lightly!’s mission.
In October 1990, through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, the Tread Lightly! 501 (c) (3) foundation was formed to encourage more public-private collaboration.
The new program announced at the event, nicknamed “25-for-25”, will provide funding to support 25 Restoration for Recreation projects across the country in celebration of Tread Lightly!’s 25th anniversary. The 25-for-25 program is made possible thanks to a consortium of partners including the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative, Federal Premium Ammunition, Bushnell and Dallas Safari Club.
“Tread Lightly!’s Restoration for Recreation program, including our new 25-for-25 initiative, hits at the heart of our mission of fostering good stewards and echoes back the original reasons the organization was created — cutting the red tape and funding important programs like these through the private sector,” said Lori McCullough, Tread Lightly!’s executive director.
“A truly committed steward models responsible behavior, mentors to others, and mends the public land when needed, which means individuals are engaged with their hands while socially responsible corporations address the critical needs of their core customers and the general public,” McCullough said....

Yamaha Viking VI Earns 2015 FinOvation Award
Second Consecutive Year Viking Models Honored in Annual Award for Innovation
CYPRESS, Calif. – March 3, 2015 – Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., was awarded the 2015 FinOvation Award from Farm Industry News magazine for its Viking VI Side-by-Side (SxS) utility vehicle. The FinOvation Award is designed to celebrate the spirit of innovation and recognize new products that have received the most interest from Farm Industry News readers. This is the second consecutive year Yamaha has received the award. In 2014, the premier Viking model that introduced the first true three-person seating capacity in a SxS vehicle earned a FinOvation Award.
“We’re honored to receive the FinOvation award for a second consecutive year,” said Steve Nessl, ATV/SxS marketing manager, Yamaha Motor Corporation. “It’s especially rewarding to know the award is based on positive responses from people who rely so heavily on their utility vehicles for day-to-day toughness, durability and performance in the field.” Nessl accepted the award on behalf of Yamaha at the 50th Annual National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville.
In its report announcing the 2015 FinOvation Award winners, Farm Industry News wrote, “Yamaha made a statement with the new Viking side-by-side. This machine offers six-person seating, more room for cargo and has a number of convenience features, including electronic power steering and differential lock.”
Yamaha introduced the Viking VI EPS six-person SxS in June 2014. The extended cab Viking VI combines Yamaha performance and durability with the comfort and convenience of a Viking—with maximum headroom, legroom and shoulder room for six occupants.
Similar to the three-seat Viking introduced in 2013, the Viking VI is made for tough off-road duty and features Yamaha’s industry-leading Ultramatic™ fully automatic transmission, On-Command® four-wheel drive system, Electric Power Steering (EPS) and Yamaha’s proven and powerful 700cc-class engine. With 600-pounds hauling and 1,500-pounds towing, the Viking VI is made to be the toughest, hardest working and most off-road capable six-person SxS ever.
“We know farmers and ranchers demand the hardest-working and most dependable equipment for use on their operations,” added Nessl. “It’s rewarding to know the Viking models have earned their stamp of approval.”
Yamaha is committed to continually expanding its line of class-leading SxS vehicles and has recently unveiled the all-new Wolverine R-Spec. “With the introduction of the Wolverine R-Spec, Yamaha is furthering its position in the growing multipurpose SxS segment of the off-road business,” added Nessl. All of Yamaha’s ATV and SxS vehicles are being assembled in the U.S.A. at Yamaha’s factory in Newnan, Georgia, for worldwide distribution.
